Oh, what a night it was.
Do you ever have any sleepless nights? You know, then, how it makes you feel the next day or two. Tired, groggy, and just plain out of it, right?
My week started off fairly well. I spent a large part of the day Tuesday trying to find all the photos on my cantankerous laptop for my Before And After post of the work we did on Kim's house.
The next day, Wednesday, I did notice that my head was beginning to feel a bit full, but I braved the bitter cold and headed to CoMo to pick up daughter's payroll for her and exchange some drapes she had bought at Bed, Bath and Beyond, plus get a few needed items for myself.
Speaking of the drapes...one panel was 2 inches longer than the other and when hung side by side you could tell that even the colors weren't the same! And they were supposed to be exactly alike!
Fast forward to Wednesday night...daughter cooked another delicious meal for us since I'd run errands for her. During the meal, I started feeling light-headed. Soon, I had to have help to go sit on the sofa. I was getting very dizzy. I tried to lay down, but that made it worse.
After a while, BG helped me into the car and I took some Sudafed as soon as we got home and then went straight to the recliner where I stayed the whole night.
I was afraid of lying down as I'd once had labyrinthitis and it kept me in bed for a whole month. Never want that ever again! I couldn't even get up to go to the bathroom and believe me, bedpans are no fun. Especially when you are home alone while hubby is at work.
Will this night ever end?
~An old joke: Will you take my bags? I can't, they're attached to your eyes.~
I thought this hilarious when I was young, until I started getting them.
I didn't sleep, only dozed a very few times. Each of the kitties took turns sleeping on me, even Sissy who never, ever gets on anyone's lap. Maybe she thought I needed comforting because I'm sure I must have groaned a few times...and probably muttered a bad word or two while impatiently waiting for the dizziness to ease up.
As dawn broke yesterday morning, I was feeling better and able to walk to the bathroom unassisted. Which was a good thing, because BG had bailed out of the house early to go to work after checking to see if I was still alive. He doesn't do sickness very well. When he is sick, he heads down to the man cave and you never see him again until he is very hungry.
I discovered that I was hungry for something to eat, so I decided to have an egg for breakfast. Which butterfingered me dropped on the floor before I could crack it open to put in the pan. Which required me to bend over to clean up the mess. Whew! I passed the first test because I got it done without getting dizzy.
Then, it seemed like whatever bug I had must have hit some of the kitties because I found 2 messes to clean up from them losing their breakfast. Serves them right for pestering me through the night...ha! More bending over for the cleanup, but thankfully no dizziness.
Today, I am still spending quite a bit of time in the recliner as my head still feels a bit yucky and I'm just plain
Exciting post, huh? LOL! I hope your start to the New Year has been better than mine! I'm behind on visiting, but I'll get by as soon as I can. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
